Westpac GM Insurance Sue Houghton will serve as Insurance Council of Australia (ICA) President through to the end of next year, the board said last week.

Ms Houghton was appointed on an interim basis at the start of July after previous incumbent Gary Dransfield stood down due to management changes at Suncorp that saw him leave the company.

Ms Houghton was previously finance director at Wesfarmers Insurance and held a number of senior positions at IAG.

ICA’s board also last week accepted the resignations of Swiss Re Head of Australia and New Zealand Mark Senkevics and RAA Insurance CEO David Russell, and announced the appointment of Suncorp Insurance Product and Portfolio CEO Lisa Harrison.

Mr Senkevics is changing roles at Swiss Re and will head property and casualty underwriting for the Asia-Pacific region, based in Sydney.
